Question 2

Research, written and practical assignment ( problem solving )

  • Use the magazine style brochure that you designed in Module 5. Add a spot varnish to the cover and change the design to use spot colours. ( You are welcome also make layout changes if you want to. ) For your magazine, use a spot varnish for the cover and design it using two sport colours.
  • Make use of your checklist that you designed and prepare the file for print.
  • Decide what paper weight and type you will use.
  • Decide what type of binding you will use, for example, saddle stick, perfect bind, etc. (See the printing terms link.)
  • Upload the print-ready PDF to your blog and post screenshots of your packaged files, and instructions.

Make sure to include the instructions ( like spot varnish, paper choice and blinding ) in the file.


For this lesson task I have a little bit bad time. So, I think I did not do it good enough like it should be but I try my best I can. Sometime in the future if I have time, I will look back at this lesson task one more time and try to do it better than now.

This is the cover that I have added a spot varnish to the cover and change the design to use spot colours.

For this Magazine style brochure, I decide to use paper weight 90gsm and type silk coated paper. For the type of binding I will use saddle stich.

This is the print-ready PDF
